https://yoyoma.lnk.to/hopeamidtearsLF


SAT 11:45 Music Matters (m000wry9)
Yo-Yo Ma and Emanuel Ax

Tom Service is joined by one of the most celebrated duos in chamber music, Yo-Yo Ma and Emanuel Ax, to talk about their new recording of the cello and piano works of Beethoven. They first recorded these together forty years ago - how has their approach to music changed over this time? The title of their album 'Hope amid tears' reflects both the events of Beethoven's life and the situation in which the world has found itself over the past year.

'Dido's Ghost' is a new opera by UK composer Errollyn Wallen, premiered this weekend. It takes Purcell's classic opera Dido and Aeneas as a starting point, and develops as a sequel to the piece - what happened to Aeneas after he left Carthage, and is he haunted by the memory of his relationship with Dido? Tom talks it all over with Errollyn Wallen and conductor John Butt, with exclusive rehearsal recordings from the new piece.

And alongside Late Junction's month-long dream season, Tom looks at music and dreams - dreams that have inspired composers, and musical dreams that have helped some make sense of their lives. He is joined by musical dreamer Jessica Duchen and American author and researcher Craig Webb to reflect on how far the experience of music itself is like entering a dream world.

SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m000wryf)
Oboist Uchenna Ngwe with sounds old and new

Oboist and researcher Uchenna Ngwe is the founder of plainsightSOUND, a project that uncovers and promotes the work of black classical musicians. Today Uchenna chooses music by composers including Eleanor Alberga, Michael Mosoeu Moerane and Florence Price and reflects on why it is so important to perform and record music that has often been previously overlooked.

Uchenna is also wowed by the breath control of Jessye Norman singing Strauss and the ability of Esperanza Spalding to accompany herself on the bass whilst singing. And the oboe itself gets a good workout in music by Tchaikovsky, Gordon Jacob, Saint-Saens and Albinoni.

A series in which each week a musician explores a selection of music - from the inside.

SUN 00:00 Freeness (m000wryw)
Surprising Solos

Corey Mwamba features soloists who expand the possibilities of their instrument, including a famous drum solo by Art Blakey. Nestled amongst a series of hard bop tracks on the 1964 album The Freedom Rider, Blakey’s solo shows how moments of freeness and liberation are fundamental to jazz. Plus there’s new music from guitarist Chris Sharkey whose debut solo album sounds nothing like what you think of when you hear the words ‘guitar solo’.

Sarah Walker chooses three hours of attractive and uplifting music to complement your morning, and puts a musical spin on events.

Keyboard music is at the heart of Sarah’s choices today as she discovers a sparkling concerto by Joseph Haydn played by Leif Ove Andsnes, a breathtaking organ fantasia by JS Bach, and an intriguing piano version of the Adagietto from Mahler’s Fifth Symphony.

Plus, a blues by Duke Ellington that underpinned a pivotal point in the 2013 film American Hustle.

At 10.30am Sarah invites broadcaster Marie-Louise Muir to join her for the Sunday Morning monthly arts roundup, focusing on five cultural happenings that you can catch either online or in person during June.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m000wsl5)
Anya Hurlbert

If you’ve ever wondered why you love blue and hate the colour khaki, or have spent hours arguing over a colour chart because you and your partner can’t agree on how to paint the bedroom, you’ll be fascinated by Professor Anya Hurlbert. She’s a neuroscientist and a leading researcher into how the brain perceives colour, and why we feel so strongly about it. Brought up in Texas, studying at Princeton and Harvard, she is now Professor of Visual Neuroscience at the University of Newcastle; she’s also spent years advising the National Gallery on how to show their pictures so we can see the colours most vividly. She’s married to the science writer Matt Ridley.

In conversation with Michael Berkeley, Anya Hurlbert discusses the scientific research that reveals the world’s favourite colour: blue. She talks about how the brain processes colour, and why colour perception is so individual and so bafflingly complex. A few years ago for instance, ten million people took to Twitter to argue about the colour of ‘The Dress’ – was it blue and black, or white and gold? Professor Hurlbert got hold of the real dress, put it in a tent in Newcastle, and invited people to come look at it. So, can she tell us what colour it is really?

Music is incredibly important in Anya Hurlbert’s life, and she grew up with an ambition to be a concert pianist. She still finds that playing Bach ‘calms her soul’. Music choices include Bach, Beethoven, and two composers she believes should be better known: Thea Musgrave and Elisabeth Lutyens. She chooses a song by Schubert which is all about the colour green. And she reveals her passion for country music, with Jerry Jeff Walkers “Up Against the Wall, Red Neck Mother”.

Produced by Elizabeth Burke.

It is thought that Albinoni wrote at least 50 operas, although few of them survive.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b09rz2pq)
Debussy the Impressionist?

Tom Service considers whether Claude Debussy was an Impressionist or not. He is often said to have composed Impressionist music - in such popular works as Claire de Lune and La Mer. But Tom argues that Debussy's music has quite a different character to that of the Impressionist painters - and to prove it he discusses the techniques of those painters with art historian Anthea Callen. Debussy, Tom argues, was a modernist, an abstract composer and also (in his opera Pelléas et Melisande) a creator of nightmares.

SUN 18:45 Between the Ears (m000wslh)
The Nightingales of Berlin

In early summer, as darkness descends, Berlin resonates with the sound of nightingales. You can hear their haunting, ever-changing songs in parks, woodlands and gardens across the city. From Kreuzberg to Treptower, Tempelhof to Hasenheide, Berlin has become a refuge for one of the most celebrated and mythologised birds on earth.

The city is the summer home for over one and a half thousand nesting pairs. Nobody’s quite sure why nightingales have adopted the city so enthusiastically. Maybe it’s Berlin’s enlightened policy towards park management which leaves areas of untended scrub and dense bushes providing ground-nesting nightingales with perfect cover.

Whatever the reason, this blossoming of nightingales means that their song has become the soundtrack to countless moments in Berlin’s residents’ lives: lovers listening to the nightingale’s melody in the depths of the night; a childhood memory of illness soothed by hearing the song – and the German name Nachtigall – for the first time; and a visit to one of the few architectural remnants of Germania, Hitler’s megalomaniacal plan for a new city on the site of Berlin.

This programme gathers memories of the nightingale’s lingering, multi-faceted song and the sounds of city evenings to create an audio portrait of Berlin, its people and the bird to whom it’s given refuge.

We hear too from a group of musicians who seek out nightingales in the city’s parks to play alongside them. They describe feeling their way into the nightingale’s song, the call-and-response between bird and human and the sense of each listening to the other. Some even describe themselves as nightingales: they’ve travelled from far countries to make music in Berlin.

The programme is made in collaboration with Berlin Museum of Natural History’s Forschungsfall Nachtigall project that asks members of the public to record nightingales and send in their recordings – along with stories and memories of the bird which has become a symbol of the city.

With the voices of Sarah Darwin, Korhan Erel, Gaby Hartel, Volker Lankow, Christopher and Erika Lehmpfuhl, Charlotte Neidhardt, Philip Oltermann, Sascha Penshorn, Tina Roeske, David Rothenberg and Cymin Samawatie.

Featuring music from David Rothenberg’s 'Nightingale Cities' project and 'Berlin Bülbül by David Rothenberg and Korhan Erel.

Location recordings in Berlin by Martyna Poznańska and Monika Dorniak.

SUN 19:15 Sunday Feature (m000wslk)
Archives in the Culture Wars

In this feature, New Generation Thinker Tom Charlton offers a personal account of how his academic research in various archives has become inadvertently and yet inextricably implicated in the current ‘culture wars’ being fought over how best to tell Britain’s history.

Joining Tom, textual scholar Dr Alison Searle explains how archives can contain brutal and shocking stories – revealing the competing impulses between commercial, financial and charitable impulses in Britain’s complex history of colonisation – and considers the responsibilities of researchers handling such material. The Bahamian Anglican priest and Caribbean theologian, Revd Dr Carlton Turner, reflects on the potential ramifications today of a growing awareness that some of Britain’s Christian missionaries were funded on the back of slave labour.

Archives are a key part of how our history is constructed; Tom Charlton argues here that an attentiveness not only to the tales they contain, but also to the stories of the archives themselves – who compiled them up, and how – is an equally vital part of how we should approach history. Such a process is no denigration of Britain’s past, but rather a rewarding scrutiny of who gets to tell what stories, and how.

SUN 19:30 Drama on 3 (m000wslm)
Terminal 3

A stage play by celebrated Swedish playwright Lars Norén. Two couples sit in a hospital waiting room. One is here for the birth of their first child; the other has been asked to identify the body of their son. Introduced by English writer Simon Stephens.

She ..... Norah Lopez Holden
He ..... Joseph Ayre
Man ..... Shaun Dooley
Woman ..... Jane Slavin
Guard ..... Philip Bretherton

Translation from the Swedish by Marita Lindholm Gochman
Directed by Toby Swift

Lars Norén is regarded by many as the finest Swedish dramatist of the last hundred years. He died in January this year. Terminal 3 is one of a collection of plays - the Terminals - from later in his career. It was first produced in 2006 in Stockholm, directed by Norén himself.

SUN 23:00 Zichy, Wittgenstein and Me (m000p6db)
Presented by Nicholas McCarthy

The pianist Nicholas McCarthy, who was born without his right hand, explores the treasures of the left-hand piano repertoire and tells the intriguing stories behind their composition. Whilst Geza Zichy and Paul Wittgenstein, both concert pianists who lost their right arms, are the key figures in the composition and expansion of left-hand music, there are also stories of Godowsky's pedagogical left-hand transcriptions of the Chopin etudes, intended to strengthen his pupils' 'weaker' left hand technique, and the touching romance behind Brahms's transcription of the Bach Chaconne for Clara Schumann when she injured her right hand in an accident.

Nicholas McCarthy see himself as the next one-handed pianist to follow directly in Zichy and Wittgenstein's footsteps and talks of his hopes for the future expansion of the repertoire. He talks about Stephen Hough's writing for left-hand piano and finds out what it is that makes this repertoire unique, demonstrating specific techniques at the piano.

Portraits of a Man, Pictures of a City

As a virtuoso violinist, as a teacher, as a priest and as a prolific composer, Antonio Vivaldi was a key figure in Baroque Italy and remains one of the most famous names in classical music today. Vivaldi is also intrinsically linked with the city of his birth - Venice.

In Monday’s programme, Donald explores this association through a series of images of the composer and La Serenissima.

MON 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m000wsmz)
Berlin Philharmonic

Performed on 11 March, this concert marked a melancholy anniversary: the exact date a year ago when all German opera houses and concert halls were closed in a bid to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. But there can be few more life-affirming pieces than Beethoven's 'Emperor' concerto with its positive and assertive outer movements flanking a hushed, spiritual Adagio. And there can be few pianists today with a reputation for Beethoven-playing as universally admired as Igor Levit.

The concerto perfectly complements Prokofiev's emotionally complex Sixth Symphony. Begun in the shadow of the World War II and completed after a fall that left him in a much reduced state, it's an unsettling combination of child-like jollity, nightmarish aggression and lament.

Recorded at the Berlin Philharmonie and introduced by Fiona Talkington.

1. Which composer was described by a top Italian critic in 1921 (three years before Puccini's death) as 'without doubt the greatest musician in Italy today'?
2. Which composer's 'sensibility for the chorus' was rated 'comparable to that of Chopin for the piano or Ravel for the orchestra' by an Italian critic in 1942?
3. Which Italian composer apart from Puccini wrote one of the top five operas of the twentieth century, according to a poll of Italian critics in 1956?
The answer to all three questions is: Ildebrando Pizzetti.
This series offers a chance to discover some of Pizzetti's beautiful chamber and choral music alongside that of one of the composers he most admired: Claude Debussy.

TUE 22:00 Free Thinking (m000wrcc)
Women's Art

A bouillabaisse soup-inspired hat paraded by the surrealist artist Eileen Agar in 1948 caused raised eyebrows to the passers-by captured in the Pathé news footage on show in the Whitechapel Gallery's exhibition exploring her career. It's just one of many displays showcasing women's art open this summer at galleries across the UK so today's Free Thinking looks at what it means to put women's art back on the walls and into the way we look at art history. Shahidha Bari is joined by Whitechapel curator Iwona Blazwick, by Frieze editor-at-large and podcaster Jennifer Higgie, by New Generation Thinker Adjoa Osei, who specialises in studying the contribution of Afro Latin-American women artists and by the artist Veronica Ryan. Her work runs from a neon crocheted fishing line, to bronze and clay sculptures and work made from tea-stained fabrics.

Veronica Ryan: Along a Spectrum runs at Spike Island, Bristol from May 19th to September 5th 2021. Her sculptures responding to the work of Barbara Hepworth feature in Barbara Hepworth: Art & Life at the Hepworth Wakefield 21 May 2021 – 27 Feb 2022 and in Breaking the Mould: Sculpture by Women since 1945
An Arts Council Collection Touring Exhibition which opens at the Longside Gallery at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park 29 May–5 Sep 2021

Eileen Agar: Angel of Anarchy runs at the Whitechapel Gallery 19 May - 29 Aug 2021 alongside another focus on women artists in Phantoms of Surrealism 19 May - 12 Dec 2021

Jennifer Higgie's book The Mirror and the Palette Rebellion, Revolution and Resilience: 500 Years of Women's Self Portraits is out now and she presents a podcast Bow Down: Women in Art

Adjoa Osei is a New Generation Thinker on the scheme run by BBC Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to work with academics to put their research on radio.

You can also find exhibitions of The Life And Legacy of Constance Spry at the Garden Museum; Ellen Harvey and Barbara Walker at Turner Contemporary; Infinity Mirror Rooms by Yayoi Kusama at Tate Modern; Charlotte Perriand - The Modern Life at the Design Museum; Paula Rego at Tate Britain; Karla Black at the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh; Sophie Tauber-Arp coming to Tate Modern; and Joan Eardley's centenary marked at the Scottish Gallery in Edinburgh.

Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741)

Vivaldi’s Muses

As a virtuoso violinist, as a teacher, as a priest and as a prolific composer, Antonio Vivaldi was a key figure in Baroque Italy and remains one of the most famous names in classical music today. In Wednesday’s programme, Donald Macleod explores the muses who inspired Vivaldi throughout his life and the composer’s relationship with these women - the music written for a virtuoso violinist at the Ospedale della Pieta, and his later relationship with two half-sisters, Anna Giro and Paolina Tessieri, and the accusations levelled against him when they both supposedly moved into his house.

WED 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m000wssk)
Stephen Hough and Friends play Mozart and Poulenc

Composer-pianist Stephen Hough is joined by a starry line-up of wind players for two of the great works for piano and wind. Mozart, peerless in so many ways, was one of the great keyboard players of his time who also had an unerring affinity for wind instruments and their capabilities. In his miraculous 1784 Quintet the individual players take characterful turns in the limelight or play collectively to magical effect. Writing to his father, Mozart described it as 'the best thing I have written in my life’.

Poulenc loved Mozart above all composers and there are nods towards him here and there his Sextet which is by turns witty, buffoonish, wistful and acerbic -- and great fun to listen to and play.

Hough's own music begins the programme. His Trio Was mit den Tränen geschieht (‘What happens to the tears’) is for the unusual combination of piano, flute and bassoon.

Recorded last month at Wigmore Hall and presented by Martin Handley.

Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741)

A Fall from Dizzy Heights

As a virtuoso violinist, as a teacher, as a priest and as a prolific composer, Antonio Vivaldi was a key figure in Baroque Italy and remains one of the most famous names in classical music today. In Thursday’s programme. Donald Macleod explores the peak of Vivaldi’s fame when he completed commissions for the great and the good and was knighted by an emperor, and his rapid fall from grace to poverty and anonymity.

Debussy and Pizzetti at LSO St Luke's

Fiona Talkington presents a series of concerts from LSO St Luke's in London featuring the music of two anniversary composers - Claude Debussy and his younger Italian colleague Ildebrando Pizzetti.

Pizzetti's 'sensibility for the chorus' was rated 'comparable to that of Chopin for the piano or Ravel for the orchestra' by Italian critics, and in today's concert the BBC Singers perform some of his beautiful choral music, including his remarkable Requiem and the Shelley setting A Lament.

Das Rheingold

Penny Gore introduces Richard Wagner's 'Das Rheingold', in a performance recorded as a concert version at the Opéra Bastille, Paris, in November last year. In Part I of 'The Ring of the Nibelung', based on Norse myths, we hear how the theft of the magical Rhine gold and the forging of a ring, which is later on cursed, trigger a series of tragic events in which the Gods, led by Wotan, see their existence compromised in this tale of love, power, greed, treason and revenge. Philippe Jordan conducts a starry cast led by the bass Ian Paterson in the title of Wotan.

Plus, continuing this week's focus on German ensembles, Lionel Meunier directs the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra and choral ensemble Vox Luminis in Agostino Steffani's Stabat Mater.

Centenary Simpson

Live from MediaCityUK, Salford
Presented by Linton Stephens

Beethoven: Piano Concerto No 4
Simpson: Symphony No 2

Complementing last week's "Composer of the Week" the BBC Philharmonic and Martyn Brabbins present a live performance of Robert Simpson's Second Symphony. With a Beethoven-sized orchestra, Simpson packs a sonic punch. The central movement is an intriguing theme and variations; again, like Beethoven, seeming to delight in the exploration of structure and shape in music. Steven Osborne joins the orchestra for another piece with an innovative middle movement, Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto, in which the soloist was famously compared to Orpheus taming the wild beasts.

Late Junction’s month-long season traversing the world of dreams continues as Verity Sharp shares a unique commission from producer, vocalist and DJ Coby Sey. In collaboration with the artist Sam Potter and his AI dream machine, Late Junction is spending June delving into our communal subconscious. Having been fed the dreams of Late Junction listeners, the AI has created new texts which we’ve given to a selection of composers to transform into new music. This week, south-east London’s Coby Sey shares his interpretation of one of our communal dreams.

Elsewhere there’s plenty of new releases, from the frenetic hip hop of Niger’s Mamaki Boys to the meditative minimalism of the Powers / Rolin Duo from Ohio. Plus, a brand new reimagined soundtrack to the 1972 Soviet sci-fi film Solaris from Kevin Richard Martin, aka The Bug.
